I never could get the hang of Thursdays - KRAD's Inaccurate Guide to Life
ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
I never could get the hang of Thursdays
This morning I started doing some work on what I hope to be doing for New York Comic-Con. It's looking like I'll be partnering up with my buddy Megan Rothrock (she of The LEGO Adventure Book series) to have a booth in the small-press area of NYCC. The plan is for me to be selling my books, Megan selling hers and also doing LEGO builds, and we might have Thoroughly Modern Lilly doing balloon twisting as well. More on that when it's finalized.

I also got the page proofs for Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution -- which were actual physical page proofs that were overnighted to me. It's been years since a publisher did that rather than send me a PDF. Every book I've done for at least the last five years has shown me proofs electronically. Mind you, printed pages was the norm for the first 10-15 years I was in book publishing......

I have to say I'm kinda looking forward to sitting with the pages in my lap and a pen in my hand. I know, I'm weird.

Also on tap for today is the DS9 Rewatch of "For the Uniform," and at least another 1000 words on "Gan Brightblade vs. Mitos the Mighty," the Kickstarter story that got pushed back in the schedule by the very same Sleepy Hollow novel I'm proofreading. My backers have been super patient, but it's time to write the fershlugginer thing. I got about 1100 words written yesterday, and it's coming along nicely.

Now for a late lunch......

Well, now I have to bring the boychik to NYCC. (He drew fanart for Megs within a couple of weeks of reading the book -- she posted it to the FB page!)

(Admittedly, Comic-Con is out of our budget and cope levels.)

Megs will be staying with us for NYCC, so maybe you can come and visit your parents and he can meet her in person in a less insane setting.

That would be extremely kind and generous, which is why I didn't ask. :) he would absolutely love that, thank you!

We have to figure out the timing closer to the event, of course...............

MacMillan is still doing physical proofs. Surprised the heck out of me--then I got my colored pencils out of the desk and got reacquainted . . .

Oddly, copyedits are electronic.

Yeah, same here -- copy edits were in a Word file, but the pages are physical.
